Erica's Nails and More November Nail Art Challenge - Day 9

Good evening!! Hope everyone's weekend went well, and if you went shopping for Black Friday, things weren't too hectic for you! I took advantage of some really awesome deals on Amazon Friday night :D

So now we're on Day 9 of the challenge, which is water marbles. This is one theme I was not looking forward to, just because it looks so complicated, there are so many things that need to be taken into consideratiom.. it just seemed really daunting! :( But that's why it's called a challenge, right??

It took about an hour for my water to become room temperature, and even then, it was still kind of cold, so I nuked it in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Added a little more water to it, and it was almost good to go! Could've been a little bit cooler, though :) And of course, I forgot to tape my fingers, so clean up was a nightmare!! I stayed up until around 4:30am this morning doing these :\ LOL

I used China Glaze Elephant Walk as my base color, then water marbled with Elephant Walk, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Sinful Colors Secret Admirer, and Sinful Colors Smokin.

Now that I have it figured out, I'll be doing a whole lot more of these! I think for a first time, I did pretty great :D

Lot of pictures!!

The last day of the challenge is to recreate your favorite! That's going to be a tricky one! :D


  1. Nice color choice, these turned out nicely :-)

  2. I think yours turned out awesome!

    I wanted to also let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award :)
